4434Escher and the Droste Effect
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=83200
The goal of this site is to visualize the mathematical structure behind M.C. Escher's picture called "Print Gallery" (1956). The visualization itself is largely non-mathematical and is accomplished through many still images and animations. The actual mathematics, involving conformal mappings of the complex plane, is contained in a pdf copy of the original AMS publication. The Droste Effect refers to any image that contains itself on a smaller scale.Fourier: Making Waves
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=85116
An interactive simulation designed to help students understand fourier series. Includes a discrete-only module and a module that illustrates the transition from discrete to continuous transforms. A wave game module in which students try to match a given waveform is also included.Graphics for Complex Analysis
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=89786
A large set of animations designed to display fundamental and specialized topics in complex analysis.Walter Fendt's Mathematics Applets
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=91208
A large collection of applets designed to demonstrate basic mathematics. Many foreign-language versions available.Fourier Synthesis (Math)

demonstration of Fourier seriesStereographic Projection
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=374828
The site contains a JAVA applet that illustrates the Stereographic Projection map of the sphere to the plane. The applet allows the pattern on the sphere to be rotated so that the stretching of its projection on the plane can be examined. This site is a part of a large collection of materials related to geometry and scientific graphing.Lemonade Stand
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=240411
This site allows student to learn about all aspects of a business. You'll have complete control over almost every part of your business, including pricing, quality control, inventory control, and purchasing supplies. You'll also have to deal with the weather, which can be unpredictable.A Complex Function Viewer
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=82940
This Java applet allows the user to visualize certain functions of complex variable. The functions considered are complex sine, cosine, and exponential function.Conjugate complex number
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=79225
This applet provides a dynamic visualization of the basic properties of complex conjugate numbers. An analytic explanation/derivation of these properties is also given.Fourier Transform
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=91098
This is a simple demonstration of the Fourier transform (diffraction pattern) of a point set. This program produces black/white or color PostScript output. The source code is provided with the package. This DEMO program is similar to the one that Marjorie Senechal shows in her book Quasicrystals and Geometry. It is possible to give scale factors for the intensity and for the input data to produce different graphics output. You may also choose between kinematical or dynamical intensity distribution. For input you only need an input file with the x- and y-coordinates of a point set.
